Wear proper uniform/foot wear and safety equipment.
Kitchen attire will vary from one establishment to the next. Check with your supervisor to know specific requirements for your workplace.
Wear proper shoes. Shoes should be comfortable, as you will be spending a lot of time on your feet. They should be black, made of durable material such as leather, non slip, closed toe, closed and non absorbent. In some cases, kitchen staff may be required to wear certified safety shoes(ie. CSA). Wearing proper shoes will protect you from dangers such as slipping, spills burning your feet and falling objects such as knives and/or heavy objects.
Kitchen employees should wear proper attire that ... i) is clean ii) not too tight or loose fitting, iii) includes always wearing socks, iv) avoid short sleeve shirts or jackets to minimize burning exposed arm areas, v) avoid cuffs in pants or around wrists that can "trap" spills.
Wear some type of hat or hair restraint when working with food in order to contain hair and/or sweat.
It is generally preferred that kitchen employees keep their hair short and trimmed and faces clean shaven. Long hair should be tied back and covered. If present, facial hair may need to be covered or should be properly trimmed.
